, a leading women’s media company that averages 60 million
unique visitors per month (comScore) and reaches more than 300 million
social media fans, will kick off the new Health & Wellness theme at #BlogHer17
on June 22 with a frank and provocative conversation about women’s
bodies, health and rights.

The conference, taking place June 22-24 in Orlando, will open with a
one-on-one interview with Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards,
who will discuss hotly-debated issues around women’s access to health
care, including contraception, preventive testing, maternity care and
reproductive rights.

“At a time when women’s rights and reproductive health care are under
threat like never before, I’m thrilled to be speaking alongside some of
our country’s most inspiring leaders,” Richards said. “From the four
million people rallying at Women’s Marches across the nation the day
after Inauguration to the outpouring of support for Planned Parenthood
we’ve seen, it’s clear that women aren’t going to sit on the sidelines
while basic rights are being endangered. I’m looking forward to engaging
with the makers and creators at BlogHer – because the work ahead will
take all of us.”

The keynote will continue with “Between the Stirrups,” a panel presented
by HelloFlo,
SheKnows Media’s women’s health platform, featuring Comedian, Actress
and Activist Margaret Cho
, and Logan Levkoff, a renowned
sexologist, author and TV personality
, and moderated by Naama
Bloom, Founder of HelloFlo and SheKnows Media’s Senior Vice President of
Integrated Marketing.
“Between the Stirrups” will be a candid and
entertaining chat about women’s bodies and sex across every age, as well
as how to empower the next generation with clear information about
topics affecting women’s health and wellbeing.

“I know sex and I know women so I know I can talk about sex and women!”
Cho said.
